Performance Is Not Only Reserved For The AMG Badge If someone asked you to name a moderately priced, fun-to-drive, compact, rear-wheel-drive sport sedan, the BMW 328i would likely be the first vehicle that pops to mind. After that, other four-door models like the Cadillac ATS, Lexus IS250 and even the Audi A4 (if you are willing to accept its rear-bias all-wheel-drive system) would follow suit. The Mercedes-Benz C250 would eventually make the list, but that luxury-oriented sedan would likely be near the bottom. But what if an entry-level C-Class could be configured to run with a...

Those octane junkies in Affalterbach never seem to tire of developing new, more powerful engines and shoehorning them into everything with four wheels and a three-pointed star. The Mercedes AMG website is featuring a cryptic bit of flash animation that shows the back end of an unknown new product speeding through a haze, accompanied by the caption that ...
World Car Fans has a new round of C-Class Estate spy shots, this time with even less camo. This batch of photos reveals almost the entire car except for the rear, where plastic obscures the details. Mercedes engineers even seem to have cooperated with the photographer, parking a C-Class sedan next to the Estate for comparison. As you might expect, the ...
To be totally honest, when we heard that there were new shots of the Mercedes Benz C-Class floating around the webiverse, we didn't pay much attention. We've seen so damn many of them over the past few months that more pics of the camo'd four-door sedan are hardly enough to get our attention anymore. Then we saw them.Frau Priddy and her long-lensed militia ...
Despite Photoshop renderings leading us astray, we're beyond certain this is the best view yet of the upcoming Mercedes-Benz C-Class. WorldCarFans reports that the amateur shots it's hosting were taken when a pair of C-Class mules pulled over on the Autobahn because one of them had stalled. In order to investigate the engineers had to lift the front ...
The Car Connection's TCC Confidential blog claims to have received in its email box this morning some pics of the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class that expose what the car will look like when it's officially unveiled at next year's Geneva Motor Show. Hmm... we're going to go out on a limb here and say that it's a bit early for official shots to find their way onto ...
As the horsepower wars rage on, the AMG team saw fit to stuff the 4-valve DOHC 6.2-liter V8 into its entry-level sedan and create the C63 AMG. With 475 hp being created at 6,800 rpm and 465 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm, Stuttgart's luxury brand is seeking to give the RS4 and soon to be released M3 a run for their money.While air is siphoned in through a ...
The next Mercedes-Benz C-Class wagon has been snagged testing in Germany. Seen underneath the standard cloak-and-dagger spyshooter eveningwear is a cautiously evolutionary shape that could only carry the three-pointed star. That said, the perennial entry-level luxury player rides on an entirely new platform, with the predictable (and welcome) share of ...
M3 who? Sorry BMW, you're gonna to have to equip the next M3 with more than just a 400-hp V8 if you hope to keep up with MB's upcoming C63 AMG. We've seen enough spy shots of the garden variety C-Class than we care to admit, but there's something about a car in camo sporting a 6.2L V8 producing a downright silly amount of horsepower that grabs our ...
